    Create the base of the fountain

    First of all, you need to create a level base for your fountain. Use anything flat which should be perfectly even. Make sure that whatever you use as the base, it should not make your fountain unbalanced, as you will never want the water to tip over, when the fountain is full of water. Here, you can use a marble slab, and use level to make sure it is even from all the sides.

    Install the urn and the pump

    After you are done with the base, place the urn on top of the base, in this case, the marble slab. Now place the pump at the bottom of the urn, which you will use to create bubbles, after pouring water in the urn. The bubbles will create splashing sounds, adding beauty to the environment in your garden. Here, you should also make sure that the urn is evenly placed over the marble slab. Otherwise, the continuous splashing of water can make the urn further unstable, if you place it unevenly.

    Adding stones and water to the urn:

    Once you properly place the urn on the marble slab and place the pump in the urn, you can put some stones in the urn. It will help in raising the level of the fountain. Thereafter, pour some water in the urn, and turn on the pump. Make sure that the fountain is making enough sound and the water is not getting out of the urn. Add more water if required. Here, you should try to fill as much water as you can, to give a more dramatic look to your fountain.
